If you want to catch the latest movie in an amazing community owned rural cinema, then The Birks is ideal. You can watch the latest blockbusters in supreme comfort in the 100 seater auditorium. With state of the art projection and sound, it really is a must-visit venue. There’s a café bar that is open until 10 pm every night so you can relax with a drink and food making the experience even better.
The cinema had actually closed, with the venue being used for bingo and an amusement arcade before the building was put up for sale back in 2005. It was at this point that a group of local people from the community put their heads together and began working on a way to find the money to buy the building with the intention of opening a cinema. Seven years later and the money was secured, and work began. This all gives you that community feel when visiting The Birks Cinema. Knowing the efforts that were made and the hard work entailed to get it up and running.
The Birks is open seven days a week with an opening on weekdays usually 30 minutes before the first scheduled film is due to begin. Saturday opening times are 10 am to 10 pm, and on Sunday it opens from 11 am.
Prices start at £7.50 for people under the age of 17 and over the age of 60. Students also pay £7.50 for a ticket. Adult tickets cost £8.50 with family booking available for £26.
The cinema is situated less than a 20-minute drive away from Kenmore.
